Patna: Nearly 5,000 people across Bihar are being trained to generate e-way bills, the nation-wide trial run for which is scheduled to begin on 15 January, Bihar deputy chief minister Sushil Kumar Modi said in Patna on Saturday.

Addressing a conference of commercial tax officials, Sushil Modi said those being trained for the purpose include 888 transporters and that for transportation of goods worth more than Rs50,000 e-way bill wills become compulsory from 1 February under the new goods and services tax (GST) regime.

The deputy chief minister, who also holds the finance portfolio, however, added that e-way bill will not be required for transportation of goods for a distance of up to 10 kilometre within the state. He also said that traders and transporters with a GST registration can generate e-way bills through computers as well as mobile phone apps.

He also underscored that even before GST came into force, Bihar was issuing e-road permits known as “Suvidha” “wherein only eight fields are required to be filled as against 26 in conventional application forms”. Sushil Modi also warned that after 1 February, transportation of goods without e-way bills would be viewed as an act of tax evasion and such consignments could be liable to be seized.
